We have the new CTS-V at work. 556 horse, 6.2 supercharged, 175mph top speed with the auto. 72,000 sticker, will probably sell for over 80,000!! That's alot of money to run low 12.00's....;) Phil.

You'll be lucky to see anything over 72K. These cars are no longer bringing mark-up. If it's a coupe, you might see sticker.
Great car, regardless
Go ahead, ask me how I know.
 
The following pertains to the '09 & up Cadillac CTS-V.



Cad CTS-V2 automatic versus manual trans data (as of 05-16-2010):


Manual trans (M6): Tremec TR6060 6 speed manual,
fully synchronized with single overdrive (MG9):
Gear ratios :)1) 1st: 2.66, 2nd: 1.78, 3rd: 1.30, 4th: 1.00,
5th: 0.80, 6th: 0.63, final: 3.73, reverse: 2.90

Gas Guzzler (GG) tax of $1300, or half that of the A6
Faster by 16 MPH (191 MPH versus 175 MPH (governed))
A tad slower in the 1/4 & on the street
A tad better *mileage* than the *auto* but probably not significant
About 38 more RWHP than the auto on the average
About 30 more RWTQ that the auto
About 95 lbs lighter that the auto
No remote start feature
Has “no lift-shift” feature



Automatic trans (A6): Hydra-matic 6L90E 6 speed
electronically controlled automatic overdrive with
torque converter clutch (MYD): Gear ratios :)1) 1st:
4.03, 2nd: 2.36, 3rd: 1.53, 4th: 1.15, 5th: 0.85, 6th: 0.67,
final: 3.23, reverse: 3.06

Gas Guzzler (GG) tax of $2600, or twice that of the M6
Slower by 16 MPH (175 MPH (governed) versus 191 MPH)
A tad quicker in the 1/4 & on the street
A tad worse mileage than the manual but probably not significant
About 38 less RWHP than the manual on the average
About 30 less RWTQ that the manual on the average
About 95 lbs more that the manual
Remote start feature

About 1 in every 6 ’09 CTS-V’s were / are manual trans (M6)
 
It is a coupe, I was told it's going online for sale. I'll keep you posted.
 
overdrive

Manual trans (M6): Tremec TR6060 6 speed manual,
fully synchronized with single overdrive (MG9):
Gear ratios :)1) 1st: 2.66, 2nd: 1.78, 3rd: 1.30, 4th: 1.00,
5th: 0.80, 6th: 0.63, final: 3.73, reverse: 2.90

Why does this say "with single over drive" and then say 5th;0.80-and6th 0.63 with 4th being direct 1-1

(1) What should it say?
(2) I copied that off of a Cadillac Site, I believe.
I just put the sheet together for an easy reference comparing trannies
 
Gary I'm not picking on you sorry.
How can it be a single overdrive with 2 overdriven gears.
Shoud it not say "double overdrive".
It is a nice car though but I will never own one.
 
I will look into that and correct as necessary. Thanks for the mention.
